Going to combines, visiting schools on junior days is something that one Tennessee High School prospect plans on doing over the next few months.
For Chattanooga Baylor High School linebacker David Helton, the standout defender wants to do what ever possible to get his name out there to as many college recruiters as possible.
Helton, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound linebacker, has one offer from UT-Chattanooga but is hoping more offers are on the horizons.
"Recruiting is going good," Helton told InsideTennessee.com. "I attended the junior US Army Combine the first of the year and it was a great experience for me. To compete with some of the best athletes in the country, and be mentioned on the all defense team was definitely an honor."
Helton is thinking about making the trip to Knoxville this weekend to participate in Derek Dooley's first Junior Day as the new head coach at Tennessee.
"I'm not sure yet if I'm going or not, I'm thinking about it," Helton said. "If I don't go this weekend I will make plans on going later in the spring."
Tennessee is one school that Helton has been hearing from.
"Coach (Lance) Thompson called my coach a couple of weeks ago and has expressed interest," Helton said. "I have a lot of interest in Tennessee. It would be a great school to attend."
Tennessee is definitely a school that Helton is familiar with.
"I have gone to a lot of games there," Helton said. "I went to camp there this summer. I'm looking forward to getting to know the new coaching staff. I definitely grew up Orange and White; my mom went to school there."
What impresses Helton about Rocky Top?
"I love everything about the school," Helton said. "The football traditions there are incredible. The game day atmosphere is like no other in the country, there really is no other place like it."
